Dirk van Bastelaere
Dirk van Bastelaere (b. 1960) is a poet who also was involved with some literary magazines. In addition to poetry, he also writes essays, continuing in the vein of the post-structuralist thinking of Jacques Lacan, Roland Barthes and Julia Kristeva and drawing on contemporary thinkers as Boris Groys. The polemic character of his essays makes him one of the most committed poets in Flanders.
